WIP dalek paintball gun 2 by Jim197 WIP dalek paintball gun 2 by Jim197
24/09/2011 - I decided not to update the previous WIP of the dalek paintball gun [link] since I quite like it. Instead I have added this new WIP to show the latest progress on the model.

I have started work on the compressed air tank. I was originally going to have the air feed run into the dalek's body and say the air was stored internally, but after experimenting I changed my mind and decided to hang the air tank on the dalek's waist band instead. The tank needs a bit more work around the nozzle, and a clip to hold it on to the dalek.

Updated 26/09/2011 to add detail to the tank's nozzle, a magnet to hold the tank to the side of the dalek, and to replace the coiled air hose with a flexible metal hose.

Updated 28/09/2011 to add a crude prototype hopper. I have had to change the proportions of the gun so that the hopper is further forward than originally intended. In its original position the hopper would have smacked the dalek in the head when the gun was raised. It's still a bit tight though.

Updated 29/09/2011. Yesterday's hopper was rubbish so I chucked it away and started a new one. It's better, but it does look kind of like a hairdryer. Further work is needed.

Updated 30/09/2011. This is my sixth attempt at the hopper and the first I'm remotely happy with, so it will have to do.

Im sending an e-mail to mechmaster. Creator of the Second Empire comic strip. About fiting this idea some were in the strip. I wanted to let you know when he informs me of his decision of useing it or not.
And was wondering of your thaughts too on the subject :)

It would be cool if he could work it in to Second Empire somewhere, but it might be hard given the current storyline.

I may not be able to give it a featured role, but I could easily slip it in somewhere as I do love to include interesting little details in the background that get people thinking and it is definitely an intriguing looking design.

Excellent! I shall look forward to it. I'm really glad you find the design interesting, but please feel free to modify it as necessary to suit your needs. :)

Looks Grate, just replace one of the dalek skirt spheres with a tank, & the piping needs to be changed. Daleks use an electro magnetic field around ther bodys to keep out bulits & stuff. I don't think plastic or rubber will do for pipeing.....How about one of thiese. :pointr: [link] [link] :pointl: gold or silver color optional :)

That would work, not only that, I'm thinking the daleks have advanced compression technology, like the steam ball in the anime "Steam Boy"

I have updated the WIP to replace the plastic air hose with a flexible metal one. It doesn't quite look like either of your suggested examples, but I hope its OK.
